Dear ASA members,

The HPC and GPU Webinar Series aims to provide researchers with a range of High Performance Computing, e-Research, and coding skills. These webinars are free and open to any Australian-based researcher. While our examples and demos will be tightly coupled to the gSTAR architecture and software modules, researchers who do not use gSTAR are still welcome to attend.

The Second Webinar of this series will be: GPU Programming for Beginners
By: Amr H. Hassan- Swinburne University of Technology
On Monday 18th August 2014 - 2:30 PM (AEST)

Topics to be covered:

*         Introduction to Shared Memory Architectures

*         Why use GPUs?

*         Introduction to CUDA C

*         Using CUDA on gSTAR

*         Programming with CUDA C (Examples)

This webinar targets C/C++ Developers. This session is designed for users with NO CUDA experience, however good C/C++ experience is a prerequisite.
